She's every woman and none... not a poem!


She this...
She that...
She all perfect
She not perfect
It seems to give me a headache

Yes, I know character matters
I am working at it
Yes I know virtue matters
He is working on that

What does the finished product look like?
I don’t know cos I am still headed there
What does God want?
I don’t know yet cos so many voices
So many opinions
Seems like deja vu all over again

I don’t know it all
But I will know what matters when the time is right
Right now I just need to slide out from under the weight of everyone’s expectations
And to rise up
I am awake and alert and I guess the series of circumstances that brought me to this place are of His making
It is all good, it is a good place rather

It is like old times again
Golden girl, she will do everyone proud
Can I just do me proud?
Can I just do God proud?
Cos I will never succeed at doing everyone proud
The list of expectations is different for each person

I don’t do very well under pressure or scrutiny for that matter
Scrutiny is at best fault finding, at worst, love, no I don’t think so
It doesn’t really matter anyway; I wonder why I cared so much instead of just letting go
I am learning but really only One person’s expectations matter
Cos for everyone else it is always changing
I refuse to be on any one’s pedestal because it is just a replay of the heroes past
They place you on a pedestal only to bring you crashing on a whim
You are only just a chess piece most times in the games humans play
Cos no matter how much we deny it, our humanity gets the better of us a lot of times

In the eyes of God though, you are one and only, apple of His eyes
He won’t change His mind tomorrow on a whim and caprice, He is that constant
It took me a while to get it but I do now, I truly do
Just want to be me, don’t want to be anyone’s mirror image
I want to be the ‘me’ God sees when He looks at me.

I know of eternal life, I have perceived it
Still in spite of the new creation that I am
When I place my arm on my hand or my head, what I feel is very human
Yet eternity is just as tangible; as least to me
God is just as real to me so when all is said and done I run to your throne and say
Why on earth won’t you speak to me, to my heart?
You have no answer for me but in the stillness of the day I place my hand on my heart
And you are there.
It is no poetry either
I wonder, what does all of this mean? I hate not being in control
At least I like to imagine that I control some things, lol!

At least the Most High the sovereign One is innately good and in that I find safety
The heart of men, hmmm Only Jesus knows jare
The rest of us, we are safe in His hands
O what wretched souls that we can be when we don’t consider Him
I would be lost without Him but gratefully I am not
I am safe and secure in Him!

I am learning to be silent again and in the midst of the silence to listen...

I am certain that this is my path though and since it is, it must mean that I have all that I need to walk in it because He always provides, of that I am sure
He’s a provider after all and He’s promised that I will never lack any good thing.
So it seems that sounds like faith, tis a good place

You’re the leader O Lord, I am tired of wrestling with You, can I just rest in You?
Let me know which steps to take and I will do them by Your grace

This is not a poem, tis just thoughts

They deserve to be blogged about


Some people start making waves ever before they have a chance to invent something
Social media will make these girls famous today. I am not sure they counted on the kneeling down with their NYSC certificates would make them stars. Social media has decided that today  they are worth it.

A friend from college made a joke of how they were doing what GMB should have done since. I laughed of course.

Did I tell you about an amazing girl that the Holy Ghost led to Haiti? Awesome story on "Faith Channel", she made my day. Well, she told the story of how she was crying and crying and confused and couldn't understand why she was in Haiti, she spoke of how God led her to a little girl who was trying to kill a bird for food.

Long and short of the story she went to America and when she came back, she miraculously began speaking Haiti language and everyone understood her. I have always believed in miracles long before I was born again and the things of God always amaze me. Read more

I took this photo with my cell phone
Wonders of wonders, she has a blog and a site where you can help make some people's lives better. I call it a kingdom offering. Here is the site here.

Did I tell you that there is a business fair tomorrow at Eko Hotel and that it is free?

Did I tell you that you stand to win iPads?
Did I tell you that you can win printers and flashdrives?
Did I tell you that you can win N3000 off your taxi fare via the technological company that connects people to taxis? 
That is N3000 off your first two rides.

Please enough of the marketing, go and register at http://www.connectnigeria.com/bizfair

Have a great weekend. I will. My weekend is packed till Sunday afternoon. No rest this week, it will have to be next week then.



Life is just a whirlwind right now, a whirlwind of good things.

Faith Nuggets: 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.[a]

So I am expecting great surprises...because so is everyone born of the Spirit and I am born of the Spirit so I cannot be predicted.

Just thinking...

Random things going through my mind
Not always coordinated but always creative, mind blowing!

So much is going on in the world and no matter how I try to ignore, as someone in the Arts, I always take notice and I want to express it in some way. 

I don't know what I would have done were I her but this little girl inspired me this morning. She has just lost her home but she wants to forgive the militants.


We can all learn a lesson from her. Instead of focusing on what she lost, she's focused on the God who can restore all.

I love blogging and there are some blogs that I stalk all the time. One of utmost value is this one here. I noticed that it is always edifying. You can feel virtue flow from it if you are a believer in that kind of thing and I am. I believe that all Christians based on what they are focusing on can have virtue flowing from them. Let's go there: Hajel's Musings

I read it and I just know that learning to rule your tongue and to have the mind of Christ as you renew daily is one of the greatest things that you can ever do.

I read a book recently. It is called Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers. 

Buy it here

It helped me remember that choosing to believe in the invisible is a personal choice. By the grace of God, I don't want to live any other way. It is the higher life that is much talked about. The beatitudes. Let me get the meaning.

Do you know who the speakers at the business fair are? Me either. Lol. I kid. You can find them here and all the guests at the tweet chats that have been holding every Thursday. You can find them using these hastags #SMENigeria and #CNBizFair

Me and all these my causes and my work. The world is changing everyday and part of it pleases me while part of it saddens me. Lord help us. Cause us to be sensitive to your move and to be alert to your spirit. Help us to be led by our spirit and not our physical senses. help me live that higher life indeed. #Grace

There is a tweet chat happening in one hour. Join in and meet the technology company that gets you taxis at the snap of your fingertips. At good prices. I say so. And I am Ijebu when it comes to paying taxi fare. I want to get the best bargain possible because they are eating out of my car fund. 

Join them via #CNBizFair or via these two handles @connectnigeria and @uber_Lagos.www.twitter.com/uber_lagos

Ever been to a court?


I have not.
I did pass by it though.

It shows a woman in gold
She holds a sword in one hand and a pair of scales in the other
The sword represents judgment and the pair of scales represent mercy
It should represent fairness but life isn't fair, will never be, but God is merciful
Mercy is better than fairness
With mercy He judges you by His righteousness (if you have Jesus)
and by His judgment you are qualified for every good thing in him

I am still an idealist about many things
Both are meant to be applied
Justice and judgment I mean

These last few weeks I have been focused on politics and doing that I have seen the true side of many people. Can't say that I am surprised. I refuse to be cynical though
I have been insulted (I can handle that), maligned, the latest one is bullying
I can't say that I wasn't warned. One of my pastors warned me, I was going to do what s/he said but I believe that I should speak  out. Nothing happens by chance. God is still in charge of all things even politics. My mom has been begging me to take it easy, she say she knows Nigeria better than what they are saying because of history (Dele Giwa was bombed, wasn't he?).

I will take it wasn't in about 6 weeks time, other than that, I promise to be careful in my movement, get home early, follow the leading of the Spirit and to trust God. 

I pray that God's will be done.

I will vote. I have had my PVC since November, I suffered to get it. Did my homework et al. 

Here's how Lagos looks, stickers, fliers, bill boards, boards everywhere. We cannot take a break until the elections are over. Our minds are being assailed by good things, bad things, all things politics. This is the way it always goes, has always been. I pray that God has some good surprises for us this year. Something unusual.

Road Maps, Coordinates, Beacons, Destinations, the Holy Ghost Knows Them All

I always used to ask what kept Noah steadfast building an ark for 100 years. He must have had an element of crazy or he trusted God a lot.



I'd be reading Hebrew 11 and I'd say, how did his family react to his decision to build an ark when the rain (I don't think those people had ever experienced rain because the ground provided enough water to grow the crops) and he just kept on following  the measurements he had been given by God.

"Guess who was laughing when the doors of the ark was finally closed by God and the rain began to fall?"

That was my teenage thought. Knowing God better now, he wasn't laughing. Noah wasn't either. God was operating through Noah on earth. He is not willing that any perish. The one through whom God is operating on earth has the emotions of God. God must have wept.



God is just. He's also compassionate. An ark is still been built today. The church is still being built today. People are still being built today. People are still being built today. So that we will look great and accomplish something great. Maybe. That is not number 1 though. Our number 1 is to accomplish God's goal on earth. His agenda. Key into His end time agenda, reach the people for Him. Give God priority. He honours the man who gives Him priority. Let Him guide your thoughts, words and actions. Be conscious that Jesus is watching you, not to score you and to say, "Yes, I knew you would fail". That is not the Father's heart. He's watching over you, to strengthen your feeble knees and teaching your hands to be strong and directing your aim. He's watching over you, saying, " You go girl, I will carry you, I will help you, you will not lack anything, you are provided for, keep moving".

The crowd of witnesses are not silent either, they say, 'Keep moving, don't stop, don't worry you will always know what to do, just keep listening to the Holy Ghost. You will fulfill purpose. Nothing can stop you, keep moving. You are led by the Spirit of God. Nothing about what you do everyday is ordinary. You have heavenly reinforcements and heavenly support on your side. Your angels are on guard, always prepared, you are protected. All that is yours is protected. All that you require has already been provided.

Keep communication lines open and you will be fine.

I Didn't Know That My Journey Would Bring Me Here

Wholeness!

There is wholeness in my spirit, I am garrisoned around about me with peace. The Holy Ghost leads me through my spirit. I am one with God's Spirit.

He leads me beside the still waters, He restores my soul...

I tell of the righteousness of God because outside of Him I am irrelevant when you consider eternity. My business is growing. My walk with God is growing. My soul is restored. He yet restores my soul because opportunities to be offended are everywhere but I choose love, I choose to respond in love because I represent another kingdom.

I am attending a business fair and if you are an entrepreneur I invite you to come and attend and learn how to join the big leagues. I know you want to get bigger, and exercise dominion over the market and be lifted up and all those wonderful things Abraham had.

Business things...serious matter
So see the flier that I have to share with you.

Have you heard of Connect Nigeria Business Fair?

Register by clicking this link

Who heard about Pastor Sam Adeyemi's free cd that can be delivered to your house? It is just today that you can get it but I am getting it to learn about leadership and getting my business on track so this 2015 is turbo year. I am getting all the knowledge I can about building your business by Christian principles


Finally there is a difference between following the leading of the Spirit and living by the flesh. My prayer is that I would always know the difference.

My path is shining brighter and brighter. I expected the favour of God, I just didn't count on the envy that follows it. I am getting used to it though. It is a part of the package, can't take one without the other but I am ever grateful and thankful to God for His divine orchestration on my life. It shows me that He is there if I needed proof.

I should talk to God more...He makes things easier!

There is something for the writers in March. Watch out.
Writers, Authors, Published and Unpublished

A famous writer would be in town amongst other writers, start planning for it because you have to be there.

Bigger Goals...


I love setting big goals
Yeah, I do
I thought fear was totally dead
I find it is something that I have to deal with everyday and I think that is a good thing
Don't mind me

I have not forgotten that He didn't give me a spirit of fear
Fear will choke your dreams if you let it
If you let it, you will live a lacklustre life
That sound like a city on a hill
That's who God says that you are
And He's right



Not because he can't see your glaring inadequacies but because he's your help
This is a why you should set big dreams
Small dreams of will not draw on that man inside you
Small dreams will make you adapt to 59% or 73%
Big dreams will bring out the 100 and 290 % inside you.
Big dreams will make you draw on God
Achieving them will cause you to be delighted in God
Reach higher because you were made for more



The Spirit of man is a candle of the Lord searching the inward parts

Lord I don't know all that is in me, I ask that you light me up by Your Spirit and cause me to make eternal discoveries in Jesus name, amen.

Never choose ordinary when there is extraordinary.

When you see jobs available...

Happy 2015 people,

Sorry I've been away. I had a wonderful holiday. Spent much needed time away with family. I call it my retreat but I hardly prayed or read the word.

Currently restructuring my yearly plans and writing my yearly goals. Writing my goals in 2014 was really hard because I made drastic changes to the plan I already had.

Somethings are already fixed like my kingdom goals, family goals, career goals, spiritual life goals, as a protege of God, I have some giant killing goals. Many people may not have specific ways they write goals. Writing goals is serious business because it reveals your vision for yourself and it determines what you will achieve. Visit this page to get help on your goals setting for the year especially if you want to dream really big, you really need that stuff on paper by the way.

Click here http://www.facebook.com/dazzlewomenseries

Then here's the job application, it's not much but you can have 'seed' to take you higher. I believe that the spiritual rules the physical and that believers especially should take this serious but even if you are not a believer, you can practice seed sowing and you must first get the seed, God gives seed, trust Him.

Apply for this if you don't have a job.

Looking for young ond/hnd/BSC graduates that have excellent oral communication, good computer skills and a positive work ethic to work in a contact centre located in Idowu Martins VI for 6 weeks. Pay is N45,000. Qualified and interested candidates should please send CV to poshies.recruitment@yahoo.com. For urgent recruitment. Only shortlisted candidates shall be contacted.

There's another job available. It's on my twitter TL. Visit at http://www.twitter.com/tessbabee

Cheers and enjoy the new year, it's yours.

Meditation scripture: The path of the righteous shines brighter and brighter until it is is full day.

If I were you, I would want to know what it takes to be righteous; you should be willing to seek God. I am, daily!

2014 in review

2014 was the bomb!

It's 2 hours and some minutes to the new year.

To everyone who made 2014 special for me, God bless you real good.

To everyone who contributed to my success, good measure pressed down, shaken together and running over shall men give unto you.

As 2015 begins, let's promise to take it higher, by the help of the Holy Ghost.

God bless you all.

Hmmm What I do stand for and whatnots...

I am a big achiever kind of gal. Yes. I know who I am. I am also smart enough to know that I need coaches to get to where I am going. I found one for something I am currently changing about me. You can read here.

She says, to know your line and to write for your fans and not your critics. I won't explain it further so you got to go there and read it for yourself.


Yes. It is Brene Brown. I love how she's successful and her sincerity. So yes I am learning a lot from her.

I also checked a creativity blog. They said a lot of boundaries. Boundaries are important in life, they are also important in business. Also, this blog is run by two women on branding and visioning. Read here and see what they have to offer.

You are bound to have critics if you are going to make any impact at all but every time you put something down on paper, ensure that you are writing for your fans (the people who love you) and not your critics (those who hate your guts). Point taken.

My scripture for the week: 
"All things work together for good for those who love you and those who are called according to His purpose".

Everything is working together for my good. The good, the bad, the ugly and even the wicked is falling into line, it is working for my good.

My thoughts exactly. I just choose to 'love'.




Monday, 1 December 2014

So much is going on right now... Still I stand on the rock, every other ground is sinking sand!

"All things are working together for my good..."

Yes it is a good day and a new day and God is doing so many new things in my life that sometimes I feel I am not grateful enough but He is a good father. If I even say 'Thank you' He rushes to do more. I am humbled because money can't buy this.

I have seen so much also that lets me know how dark and deceptive this world is. But we are not unaware of the devices of the enemy. I am not in the dark, I walk in the light and I specialize in casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. I renew my mind daily.


Always be willing to take a chance and believe God.
I know this world battles everyday to get mankind to get me to take my eyes of Jesus and trust in what I see and trust in Jesus less as if this world has anything to offer but still it tries.

The media will get you to trust in yourself if you let it
It will get you to trust in your family, friends, bosses and even pastors if you let it
The media will get you to trust in medical science or coincidence if you please, if you let it

One thing I always use in clearing my mind is this clear question:

"What do you believe?"

It makes me question everything and to see clearly where my faith rests and in whom I am trusting in

I stand still for a while, weigh everything, check all the balances and I put my trust in God again and again
because you bank bank your life, your family, your destiny and your dreams and desires on His word
His word is complete on it's own

Every other ground is sinking sand!

Zenith wishes you a Happy Christmas and so do I

So Zenith Bank officially launched their Christmas lights at Adetokunbo Ademola/Ajose Adeogun to see the sight.

It was a delicate decoration of lights all around the fences and of the Six reindeer and the three photos...

This week: Picmonkey

Last week I got Udemy certified.
I became certified

Here's my certificate:

Courtesy Udemy.com

I also went for a United Nations seminar on Woman Entrepreneur. There were so many amazing women there, both speakers and attendees. Unfortunately I don't have a selfie. Here's a picture of the event. I think there were over 300 women present.

Guest Speakers: Three of them 

Women at the Women Entrepreneurs Day

I work as a social media manager. I am a new media person and I manage this site here.
It is currently under constructions, drats that you can't see it now!

There's also this group on Facebook that speaks to the woman of worth inside you. I don't care how many people have put you down, talked you down or tried to bury you in nasty words, God thinks that you are a woman of worth and on this site you will meet spirit-filled women of grace who know what it is to have opposition but still rise above it and win and become successful women in their careers and successful wives and mothers and are committed to building the next generation. They are by no means perfect but are committed to building themselves and other women up. Who better to build you up than someone who has built themselves up also. They are here.

So here's my selfie, I designed it on Picmonkey. That is the new tool I learned for the week.


Yay! I am looking professional already and I like it. 
I love what I am doing presently.

I am four days late but what the heck!


I planned to start this on the 3rd of November
What can I say? Work has been hectic!

So I just got this idea, I could just answer the questions instead of blogging about the hint that was given. How about that?

Monday, November 3
Write about an amazing imaginary brand or organization you'd love to work with. What would their pitch to you look like? What would your post say?

I would love to work with a company where all they do is advertising and branding and all day all you have to do is create and you have team mates and even though they are creative too, we all get along and so get to create good awesome work so that there is no politics about if you are doing good work because no one is trying to sabotage you. (pipe dream, is there such a thing as never having opposition? Ha ha ha)

Tuesday, November 4
What is your favorite holiday memory? (And yes, you can pick any holiday, including your birthday.)

My favorite holiday is the month we spent in Benin. It was pretty rural and we were pretty much the New Yorkers visiting a place like Pennsylvania but it was all a new experience for us meeting different kinds of people who think we eat cotton candy for breakfast instead of regular Akara and Ogi or bread and tea. 

Wednesday, November 5
Do you feel you have found your voice on your blog? What techniques have you tried to develop your voice in your writing? What are some characteristics of your personality in your writing?

Yes I have found my voice even though I don't do much writing on my novel blog with the so called voice. I am always creating one campaign or the other and striving for excellence even though I doubt I have achieved it in the last few months. The great thing about it is that I have learned so many new things and seen processes and people and uggghrrr!

My personality in writing is pretty authentic. I write what the people are projecting and hardly do I write the image without pointing out that it is an image. I had to start a private blog to bring out my real voice and then now I can switch to professional voice (impersonal) and back to my real voice, the down to earth one. I still write better in my real polite voice not the one that doesn't suffer fools gladly. I practice the fruit of the Spirit which is patience.

Thursday, November 6
Do you consider yourself a "professional" blogger? Why or why not? What does that mean to you?

I have been blogging since 2008 and yes, I didn't always write as a professional but rather as a blog but now that I work 24 hours including Saturday and Sunday (the weekends is mainly monitoring and analytics) and I have nearly completed my Udemy Courses, yes I am a professional blogger. As soon as I am done with the course, you will see my certificate. (I am also doing the Hoot suite one). I am a social media manager and blog management is one of the things that I do on my portfolio. I have 6 years of professional blogging under my belt. I have written for websites, for magazines, I contribute  in several magazines regularly and work on devotions, I am a professional blogger with a huge portfolio.

Friday, November 7

Where is the one place you would never want to go on vacation that other people seem to love? 
People love America a lot, I am not crazy about it. People love London too, I can visit but it is not my favorite vacation spot. My favourite vacation spot is the Bahamas. I want to visit that country again and again and again. I don't know why I love it but that is my choice; very cool island.

I blog professionally at http://www.imagineitincorporatedng.com

Yippee!!!



See what Google thinks of me
It is flattering...
Thank God I already loved Google
Else I would have had to leave Bing and AskJeeves for Google.com

That's all really for today.

I am in a good place, secure under the shadow of His wings, me and mine and our destinies are safe in His hands.
